Commercial Leases in New South Wales (NSW)

In NSW, commercial leases are governed by the Retail Leases Act 1994 and the Conveyancing Act 1919, among other relevant legislation. The key aspects of commercial leases in NSW include:

  1. Lease agreement: A legally binding lease agreement must be prepared, outlining the terms and conditions of the tenancy, including the rent, duration, permitted use, and responsibilities of the landlord and tenant.
  2. Disclosure statements: For retail leases, landlords are required to provide a disclosure statement to the tenant, detailing important information about the lease and the premises.
  3. Security deposits: Landlords may require tenants to pay a security deposit, typically equivalent to several months’ rent, to secure the tenant’s obligations under the lease.
  4. Rent reviews: Lease agreements often include provisions for periodic rent reviews, either through fixed increases or market-based adjustments.
  5. Outgoings and expenses: The lease agreement should clearly define the responsibilities of the landlord and tenant regarding outgoings, such as rates, taxes, insurance, and maintenance costs.
  6. Permitted use: The lease agreement will specify the permitted use of the premises, and any changes in use may require the landlord’s consent or additional approvals.
  7. Termination and renewal: The lease agreement should outline the conditions for termination, renewal, or assignment of the lease, as well as any associated fees or penalties.

It’s crucial to seek legal advice and representation from experienced commercial lawyers to ensure that the lease agreement protects your interests, complies with relevant laws, and addresses potential issues or disputes that may arise during the tenancy.
